    After my little brother upgraded to an i5-4590 / GA-B85M-DS3H-A / R9 390, the leftover parts were available to mold into a "Hac mini" for my mom. Specs: CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2V RAM: 4GB DDR3-1600 Storage: ADATA Ultimate SU800 128GB GPU: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 Case: Rosewill SRM-01 mATX Case PSU: Antec Basiq 350W OS Version: macOS Sierra 10.12 Build-Specific Capabilities/Notes: Working SpeedStep via XCPM. [source] No need for NullCPUPowerManagement after everything is settled in. R9 270X via HDMI using 'Radeon' framebuffer. Futomaki or Hamachi would probably work better after modification, but for the moment, I'm too lazy. TRIM enabled for SSD via Clover patch. AppleALC didn't work for the ALC887 audio for some reason (tried all layout-id's; probably forgot binary patch via Clover, oh well), so I am using aDummyHDA + Clover binary patch by @Mirone. Pre-Installation: BIOS Settings: CSM set to Always Intel Virtualization Technology set to Disabled (you could try with it Enabled; I was getting bizarre kernel panics that stopped after I disabled it.) Intel Processor Graphics set to Disabled Jimmies: un-rustled Installation Guide: 1. Download macOS Sierra from the Mac App Store. 2. Create a macOS Sierra installer: /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume [path to USB, i.e. /Volumes/USB] --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 3. Install the latest version of Clover to the installer USB, with the following parameters: [*] Install for UEFI booting only [*] Install Clover in the ESP [-] Drivers64UEFI |-- [*] OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 |-- [*] CsmVideoDxe-64 4. Place config-installation.plist in EFI/CLOVER, and G3258 - H81M-DS2V Kexts.zip in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12. 5. Boot the installer and install macOS. If you get a kernel panic relating to "No kext summary", try moving your RAM to different slot(s). If you get a kernel panic relating to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, then the kernel patch in the .plist wasn't enough, and you'll need to add NullCPUPowerManagement to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12. You can remove NCPM on/after Step 6. 6. Use the installer USB to get into macOS, then install Clover to the local disk. Don't forget to copy over config-installation.plist and the kexts from earlier. 7. Run Mirone's AppleHDA Patcher with the following parameters: Realtek ALC887 VD layout-id 5 8. Copy aDummyHDA.kext from ~/Desktop/MironeAudio/10ec0887/[AppleHDA version]/Clover to /System/Library/Extensions, then repair permissions: cd /System/Library; sudo chmod -R 755 Extensions; sudo chown -R 0:0 Extensions; sudo touch Extensions You do not need to worry about the config.plist in the same directory; it's contents are already part of the .plist we've been using. 9. Run ssdtPRGen.sh, then copy ~/Library/ssdtPRGen/ssdt.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. 10. There are a couple entries in my config.plist that, so far, have been commented out (i.e. "<key>#Devices</key>"; the "#" is a comment). Go ahead and uncomment those (i.e. <key>Devices</key>). Also, now would be a good time to rename 'config-installation.plist' to just 'config.plist'. 11. Don't forget to generate unique SMBIOS data via Clover Configurator! That... should be it. Reboot, and enjoy your new Hackintosh! If any issues occur, or if I left something out, please don't hesitate to let me know below.

    https://youtu.be/wXZiEEacZOo PurpleRestore is a tool made by Apple and is used for flashing iDevices. It provides far more customization than iTunes, and it is usually used to flash internal firmware to prototypes. This tool can (and is meant to) handle multiple restores. When performing restores PurpleRestore color coordinates the device in the table and when the device is about to receive the AppleLogo it will turn the background color of the screen to the color assigned to the device. Like iTunes, PurpleRestore communicates with iDevices using a usbmux connection. "PurpleFAT" is an Apple Factory Activation tool, assumed to be used in factories for UUT's (units under test). If the unactivated device is plugged into a computer and the software is run, it searches for the device and would activate it (Seems not to work and just plays a sound saying "Oh nooh!") PurpleFAT needs an activation sever. https://albert.apple.com/WebObjects/ALUnbrick.woa/wa/deviceActivation does not work. Application can be locked for some security reasons, and requires a passcode when unlocking the interface (This passcode is stored in a string, when dissasembled can be found at __text:00003089). PurpleSNIFF is a tool made by Apple to read identification and diagnostic information from the device. The tool is used by Apple engineers as well as factory workers at Foxconn/Pegatron. It's included in the RestoreTools package. Like iTunes, PurpleSNIFF communicates with iDevices using a usbmux connection. PurpleBuildSanitizer is an Apple internal Mac application for stripping internal builds for internal use. When creating a stripped bundle, it names the folder like so, N92-INTERNAL-INSTALL-iPhone3,3_4.2.6_8E200_Restore.

    I finished my hackintosh a couple of days ago. I am a gamer, but I'm also a web programmer. For years i've struggled with the dilemma of running 2 different (and sometimes more) computers for work and for play. Anyone who's gone through this understands that pulling all your monitor cables, mouse, keyboard, headset and other peripherals out of one computer and into another is a gigantic pain. So my goal here was to build a bad ass gaming PC that would allow me to push the limits of my Acer 144hz gaming monitor (so 140 - 160fps @ 2560x1440 resolution), but also have FULL native compatibility with Mac osX with as little hacking as possible. I can say after having used this for several days for web development and all of my routine mac osX tasks, it is an absolute dream mac. It's by far the fastest, most awesome mac computer I've ever used. The windows 10 gaming side is just as bad ass and I'm achieving 125 - 150fps in Battlefield one on high settings at max resolution. It's a beauty. You just restart and choose your OS and you're on your way. As far as the install goes, I didn't have to do anything special except use the nvidia web drivers flag when booting. The bluetooth on the ASUS rog Maximus Viii Formula works out of the box, the tp-link n900 wifi card works out of the box and all other hardware, so this was a completely painless osx install and so far I have not crashed or had a kernel panic even once. Hardware: Motherboard - ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Formula Motherboard Processor - Intel i7 6700K @ 4.0Ghz RAM - G.Skill DDR4 PC2133 64GB (4 x 16GB) GFX - Gigabyte Aorus Nvidia GTX 1080 TI 11GB WI-FI - PCI-E TP-Link N900 Wireless Card Cooling - Thermaltake Pacific Liquid Cooling with Thermaltake RGB Waterblock and Dual Radiator with RGB 120 Fans PSU - 850 Watt Thermaltake RGB Power Supply - Gold Certified USB 3.0 - Working!

    Haha yeah, the Thermaltake Core P5 is by far my favorite case ever made, its beautiful. Its got a .25" plexi glass front that is barely visible. I built the computer when all the components were brand new, so including the new GTX 1080 that went in last weekend, and not including the original purchase of dual AMD R9 390X's, it was right at $3000.

    Didn´t see the glass plate at first to keep off cable biters or poking fingers. An impressive work for sure. May I ask how much money you had to hand out for it?

    Hi Daniel, Nice choice! What GPU are you rocking? For anyone else reading and interested in a high refresh rate monitor, I would recommend one with Adaptive Sync technology relative to the brand of your graphics card. Some entry level samples are included below: NVIDIA - G-Sync Acer XB241H AMD - FreeSync Acer XF240H

    Hi, If you have no signal at boot, it may indicate that a different or patched framebuffer is required. Depending on what bootloader you're using, the invocation of a different framebuffer differs: Chameleon/Enoch/Chimera AtiConfig=framebuffer Clover [more info] <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>FBName</key> <string>framebuffer</string> </dict> I would recommend trying the Radeon framebuffer first. If that doesn't work, then it is likely you will have to take the patch route.

    Hi, I'm still not quite sure what you were trying to accomplish or if you were successful in your goal, but the Clover wiki has a page that should answer this particular question of yours: https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/What-is-what

    I'm surprised that old kext even worked in Sierra. You're lucky it didn't break your system! From what I gather from the comments section of the file you used, if your card isn't being recognized properly by the kext alone, you'll need some kind of DSDT patch to get it properly recognized, although the OP wasn't very specific as to what kind of patch was necessary. However, I would advise that you halt any further work on the GT 540M, delete the installed kext, and focus your efforts on disabling it, as NVIDIA Optimus does not work in macOS. You'll be able to achieve full graphics acceleration and save a lot more battery if you stuck with your HD 3000.

    By design, SL 10.6.X is way too old to run with anything newer than Sandy Bridge cpus. AFAIK Intel HD3000 drivers were introduced with Lion 10.7, SL is not even aware of it. IIRC, even Sandy Bridge needed a patched kernel. That in mind, you may try Nawcom´s Mod CD or USB and a retail SL DVD. Nawcoms Mod has an option to install a patched kernel for unsupported cpus. The newer your hardware, the less likely SL will work. SL Server in VMWare may be a solution if you need 10.6 on recent hardware. For a hassle free install of SL choose any old Core2Duo or even DualCore, Intel 945GM chipset or better and a supported GPU. A Lenovo T60 (intel iGPU only) or something similar will be a perfect match for example.

    Running a T420 Sierra without issues, I´m sure that your CPU is the culprit. There is no claim that your Celeron 847 has the HD3000 iGPU. Instead an unspecified "Intel Graphics" is in your specs. As your CPU is soldered in, there is no way upgrading it with a i5-2520m either. The end of the line, sorry. Maybe consider W10 again? Version 1703 does not look bad at all on my other T420. Other than that, consider swapping the X220 for the T420, which are fairly affordable as leasing returner. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Thinkpad-T420s-Laptop-Core-i5-2-50GHZ-4GB-RAM-128GB-SSD-Win-7-Pro-webcam-/372000244363?hash=item569cf1428b:g:pFYAAOSwhQhY7UOt The T420 CPU may be upgraded rather easy, if need should be. The Intel WLAN has to be exchanged as usual, BIOS may need downgrade and whitelist removal. That in mind, an easy to set up Hackintosh with a good guide too. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285678-lenovo-thinkpad-t420-with-uefi-only/

    Sorry as my Netherllands is too bad to answer. I´m rather sure though, that you will need RehabMan´s patch for Clover here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config/blob/master/hotpatch/SSDT-IGPU.dsl Your Iris plus 640 iGPU is covered there.

    My wife has a similar G41 board from Biostar for XP still. AFAIK the G41 chipset was not fully compatible with AHCI but somehow disabled. Anyway I can´t reach the OSX installer with that rig either. I did not try any further, but there are patches to get around. Maybe try with this one:

    This is a pretty old thread, so posting here is kind of pointless. For the ones with similar laptops using Arrandale CPU, it should be pointed out that "Intel HD Graphics" is an euphemism for a crap iGPU - sorry. Such iGPU was never supported in OSX by design, may we conclude Apple had a reason for that? With some skills and footwork, it may be possible to enable the Intel HD Graphics with Arrandale CPUs in OSX though: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ I tried the procedure some time ago and gave up, returned the lappy to sender.

    This are the original VideoKexts from the Mac OSX Combo Update. I've made a installer, so you can choose for yourself if you want Intel, ATI or NVIDIA kexts installed. I've made this package for the iGenius Snow image, to be released later this year. I shall upload the final image this year! But the kexts should work on any Mac OSX 10.6.5 installation! The installer is made in English and Dutch! All extensions are installed in: System/Library/Extensions... All videokexts are marked with blue, red and green labels, so it's easy to locate them... REPAIR YOUR KEXT PERMISSIONS BEFORE REBOOTING!!
